Reflection Upon Election 2017

Reflection Upon Election 2017

From Vice Chair Tiffany Diaz de Leon
I would just like to take a moment and congratulate and thank all the Washington candidates who ran this year! It’s hard enough for some of us to dedicate a Saturday to travel to an SEC meeting twice a year, let alone spend most of any weekends and weekdays doorbelling, sign-waving, going to forums, going to debates, and even up to getting radio interviews. You are the real heroes!

There was a recent poll online asking members what is the most important job of our Party? Education? Political? Or both? The answer is both, and they do intertwine.

What’s great for us, today is we have the world in our hands. We have a magical little box, along with the Internet, Wi-Fi, social, media, and audio/video, we can spread the good work further and faster than those just one or two generations before us! Our candidate’s messaging, platform, and answers are out front for the entire world to see, instantly. WE DO have the answers and the solutions, to our county’s ills.

We are starting to win elections in Washington State. May 2018 bring us more heroes, which will bring us more members, which will in-turn bring us more freedom and liberty. Again, thank you.

In Liberty, Tiffany Diaz De Leon Vice Chair, Libertarian Party of Washington State

From Isa Cline in Long Beach

I wanted to thank my fellow neighbors in Long Beach for showing their trust in me and vindicating all the hard work that I put into campaigning for this seat on the Long Beach City Council.

Having won the seat:
Trust that I will dive in head first and get to work on behalf of my fellow neighbors of Long Beach.
Trust that I will work hard for each and every one of you no matter what your lot in life is,
and no matter where you fit into the community.
Trust that I will analyze every ordinance before the council.
Trust that I will not be a yes man but also I will not be an obstructionist either unless I need to stand in opposition against something that would harm the prospects and liberty of my fellow neighbors. Even then, I will give clear reasoning why I am against something and attempt to dialog and persuade my fellow council members.
Trust that I seek to be the kind of leader that seeks to lead using consensus, not using brute force.
Trust that I am imperfect and trust that I know what I know and don’t know what I don’t know but more importantly I am open to learning what I don’t know.
Trust that I will treat the office that I hold with respect. A job, an important job and not a hobby or a stepping stone to something better.
Trust that I will not be a politician. Politics is for campaigning and often involves the selling of a bill of goods. If voters trust you enough to make you a city council member, they deserve much more than someone focused on politicking.
They deserve a member of the council who will be honest and take on the responsibility entrusted to them and work hard, work fair, not keep the status quo unless it works and aim high for making in a difference in the lives of fellow Long Beach residents who live, work, play and struggle to make a future for themselves and families here.

Thank you for your support.

From Joseph Cimaomao Jr in Covington

ith the election now past I would like to thank you all for your support. It was a long road to the election, but it came with many, many good times. New friends and new groups were made, and new ideas were brought forward that will make Covington better. Your support of me as your Council member is very much appreciated and I look forward to working to maintain that support and to working with the community to foster new ideas for the betterment of the city. I again thank you all for your support and look forward to the next four years.
Joeseph Cimaomo Jr
